Kevin Reid: A Loved Member of our Community

Kevin Reid | Savannah, GAAs a leader in the art community, it is with a heavy heart and solemn hand that Judge Realty pens this request for solidarity as we further our grave understanding of the current state. With reverence and humility we extend every condolence to the family of Kevin Reid and the staff of The Australian Aboriginal Art Gallery. Reid was a loved member of the community, a staple of local artistic progress, and an active member of the Tourism Leadership Council. He will be greatly missed and the landscape of local art has been forever changed. In an attempt to understand what we can only describe as a random act of violence, we ask that the community come together instead of divide. Regardless of race, socioeconomic standing, religion, political views, or sexuality, when a member of our community is harmed we must stand together and extend the full reach of humanity to all involved. As a community, especially the art community, Savannah does not shy away from local love and support – now is no exception.

Wall Art

Judge Realty prides itself on continued patronage of the arts, the Judge Realty Permanent Art Collection is a constantly growing testament to that. And while we love filling our walls with art from both local and global artists, we want to talk about what goes behind it. Most designers will tell you to avoid wallpaper at all costs, that used to be the rule: until these came along. Here are some of our favorite game changers. Take note and get the credit card ready.

Calico. There’s no way to appropriately pen the stunning concepts, processes, and finished products from Calico. Heavily based in tradition and the arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, originating from Japan and Turkey, Calico started as a movement to take art out of its traditional role in interior design and integrate it into the larger scheme. Through a mixture of large scale digital printing and handmade patterns, Calico delivers custom, non-repeating wall coverings that, in our opinion, should be at the top of every homeowner’s must have list. Judge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAPhotos courtesy of Calico

And if the sticker shock hits a little too close to home, they’ve recently worked with Mast Brothers Chocolate to create the packaging for a capsule collection of rare salt and chocolate combinations. So, even if Calico isn’t right for you living room, it can be for your kitchen. Judge Realty in Savannah GAPhotos courtesy of Mast Brothers Chocolate 

Next on our list is De Gournay, with a flagship on Church Street in London, it tops the list of exquisite and luxury wallcoverings. Specializing in hand painted reproductions of historic prints, particularly 18th century Chinoiserie and 19th century French designs, De Gournay is paramount and a luxe addition to any home. De Gournay is a true estate company, stating “Our wallpapers, our fabrics and our dinner plates are works of art. In a hundred years time, they will be sold at auctions as valuable antiques.” Judge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAJudge Realty in Savannah GAPhotos courtesy of De Gournay

Lastly, the Marble Collection from Murals Wallpaper. Just because this is the most accessible brand in our list, it doesn’t by any means convey a sense of the ordinary. While Murals Wallpaper might sound like something from a Trading Spaces room reveal gone wrong, trust us, it’s all amazing and we love every element of the collection. The most appealing aspect though, is the ability to input your dimensions and get a mural specific to the space you have in mind.

In July we wrote about the perfect weekend getaway, modest, low maintenance, and minimal: 23 Sapphire Island Road is the ideal spot for one. It’s the perfect distance from the Historic District to feel like a secluded getaway while still being close enough to go to dinner or do some shopping. The lot is located directly on Betz Creek with incomparable views of the marsh with direct access to the creek itself. The seller has dock plans available and a dock permit is in process. The neighborhood offers gated access, a community dock, and is conveniently located near Johnny Mercer Boulevard. As one of the few waterfront lots left in the Sapphire Island Community, it’s the perfect spot to build your own little weekend hideout or family home.
